A shoe as a sculptural and architecturally constructed form was the guiding idea in creating this shoe collection.
Strong stress is on heels, since whole shoe form is defined by them; they are like “supporting poles”, constructive elements which carry the whole creative process. Design is based on the exploration of new high heel shapes, resulting in numerous variations of their basic form. Each model is an experiment with the high heel.
Bernard Figueroa once said: “There is so much space between a woman’s heel and the floor that one can use”, and the whole concept is focused on using this space as much as possible.
Idea was to create a form which is expressive, complex and in a way unexpected, structural and constructed in detail – a shoe, which will primarily be of artistic significance, while its function will be secondary.
White and decoration free, these shoes are focused on the very form, which is, so to say, their only decorative element.
Morphology of these shoes, especially the heels, is unique and dynamic, constructed by the principle of rotation and multiplication of basic forms, creating a new design in which forms merge, permeate and interlace with one another, in complex variations. The heel shapes are created by multiplying, intercepting and rotating 2D surfaces in order to achieve a 3D figure.
The entire collection is, in a way, a homage to the sculptor Naum Gabm and the architect Santiago Calatrava whose inspiring forms had a strong impact on entire creative result of the collection.
To underline their sculptural form, the shoes are kept white, which on the other hand emphasizes the artistic language, present in the entire collection.
Their comfort and functionality weren’t of primary importance; from the very beginning these shoes were conceived as forms of artistic language and sculpturality.
